In the recent years the electrical power networks are undergoing rapid restructuring and developing process worldwide. Advancement in technologies and concern about the environmental impacts have led to increase interconnection of renewable energy based distributed generations (DGs) in distribution networks. The DGs have significant impacts on the distribution systems; these impacts may be either positively or negatively depending on the modified interconnected DG distribution network structure. It will be necessary to consider many issues concerning these impacts. In this project, an investigation of DGs impacts on voltage profile and power losses in radial distribution networks is introduced and explained. The method of determining size and placing the DG unit using classical grid algorithm search has been analyses in this report. The performance of the interconnected DG distribution network in terms of power losses and voltage profile also has been analyzed. A comparison between many cases with different numbers, sizes and locations of interconnected DGs are considered and discussed. Detailed simulations using PSS ADEPT are conducted in order to explain and verify the results. At the end of this project, the result showed the significant improvement in terms of power losses and voltage stability.
